6 Reasons to fly the Confederate flag.

By James W. King

1. It is the last flag to represent the concept of local control of ones' life in America.  It represents the same values and principles as the original U.S. Betsy Ross Flag:  Limited Constitutional Federal Government, States Rights, Resistance to Tyranny, and Christian Principles and Values.  Thus it represents "government of the people, by the people, and for the people with the consent of the governed".
2. It is an internationally recognized symbol of resistance to tyranny. That is why it was flying over the Berlin Wall when it was being torn down in 1989 and has been flown by numerous countries or provinces seeking independence.

3. It reminds all who see it that government is to be held accountable for its actions, and if those actions are viewed as not in the best interest of the people, there is a price to be paid for it.  This fact has not been lost upon the Socialist, Communist liberal left and that is why they have and will spend large amounts of money and energy trying to suppress this powerful symbol of freedom.

4. By its nature, the Confederate battle flag is a solely Christian symbol that is emulated by several international governments today because of that fact.

5. It represents the valor and sacrifice of our Southern ancestors in their quest to gain independence and recognition as a sovereign nation - called by Winston Churchill the bravest soldiers who ever lived - who displayed ultimate bravery in the face of overwhelming odds and blatant tyranny on behalf of the Yankee government that invaded the Southern homeland.

6. It was, is, and will continue to be the flag of the region Southerners call home, the Southland. We are Americans, true, but we are also proud Southerners.
